Cute & Glitzy Christmas

I'm still keeping to my resolution to make at least one Christmas card each week...this one uses the adorable 'Christmas Teddy - Little Star' by Lili of the Valley. I followed the sketch from the Just Cute Bears Challenge, using papers from the 'Wonderful Winter' pad by My Mind's Eye. I inked around the edges of all the papers using a Versamark pad, then heat embossed with gold. I coated the bards with a layer of holographic powder to make them match the glittery papers, and added a piece of gold sparkly ribbon...which I hope all makes this card glitzy enough for the 'Dazzle Us' challenge on the Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge.
